Gala Tent has announced a series of appointments to its board of directors.

The Rotherham-based marquee and gazebo manufacturer has promoted three employees into directorship roles to support the company’s restructuring and expansion.

Glen Robinson, formally printing manager, has become the Managing Director of Gala Tent’s sister company, Gala Graphics.

Spun out from the company’s existing printing department, Gala Graphics is now an independent business which employs six members of staff. The company was established after Glen took the initiative to expand Gala Tent’s printing department into an independent company after demand for printing products grew.

Steve Biggs, and Andrew Scott, IT manager and procurement manager respectively, will also become members of the board of directors.

Gala Tent Ltd has experienced a significant increase in staff numbers in the past 12 months, with the IT department in particular growing from two to six.

Glen Robinson said: “This is a huge high in my career. My new role allows me to take full control of the business, a new experience for me. Gala Graphics is growing really quickly and I’m enjoying the challenges which rapid expansion brings.”

Gala Tent’s managing director, Jason Mace, said: “Each of our new directors has over 10 years of experience at Gala Tent and I am confident that they are the right team to take the business forward.”
